(1945) En route to marry her middle-aged filthy rich boss, Londoner Wendy Hiller (Eliza Doolittle in the first movie version of Pygmalion) is stormbound in the Hebrides and confused and distracted by the friendly ministrations of impoverished Scottish Iaird Roger Livesey. Extensive location shooting imparts a hint of the supernatural to Powell & Pressburger’s most romantic movie. Approx. 92 min.

Restored by the BFI National Archive and the Film Foundation in association with ITV. Restoration funding provided by the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation. Additional support provided by Matt Spick.



“Alongside A Canterbury Tale, Powell's most eloquent tribute to the mysteries of the British landscape... Full of well-integrated symbols (islands, hawks, a whirlpool) and lyrically shot in black & white, it's all quite beautiful, combining romance, comedy, suspense and a sense of the supernatural to winning effect.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“A sort of romantic suspense drama which is as beautifully performed as it is beautifully written and directed. This simple story line is developed with considerable imagination, wit and emotional insight into a thoroughly enjoyable and exhilarating romantic experience… The whole atmosphere is alive with the sound of whining wind and the crashing of angry waves on the rocky coast, the ghosts of ancient, kilted clansmen standing silent watch over abandoned castles and the skirling of bagpipes.”
The New York Times

“I reached the point of thinking there were no more masterpieces to discover, until I saw I Know Where I’m Going.”
– Martin Scorsese
